Juventus are reportedly ready to pursue a deal for Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri during the summer transfer window.

Juventus have reportedly identified Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri as one of their priority targets ahead of the summer transfer window.

Since leaving Stamford Bridge for Turin, Maurizio Sarri has frequently been linked with a reunion with Emerson, who has previously represented fellow Italian giants Roma.

According to Calciomercato, Sarri has placed the versatile full-back at the top of his defensive wishlist ahead of a move later in 2020.

Emerson has just under two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract, keeping Chelsea in a strong position regarding the player's future.

However, with the 25-year-old being restricted to just 16 outings in the Premier League and Champions League this season, Frank Lampard may be open to a sale.

The report suggests that Juventus are prepared to make a bid in the region of €25m (£21.23m).
